Below is the number of issued invitations during 2017-18 program year. Issued invitations for State and Territory Government nominated visa subclasses are not included in these figures.
|Skilled – Independent (subclass 189)||2000||2000||3500||2500||1400||600||600||600||600||||13800|

This graph illustrates the number of clients who were invited for application with their corresponding points score.
Clients with the highest points score are the first to be invited for the relevant visa. The date of effect which is the time when they reached the points score determines the order of invitation for clients who get same points score. This means earlier Expression of Interest dates are invited before later dates.
Skilled-Independent visas (subclass 189) are allocated first. The remaining available places will then be allocated for Skilled – Regional (Provisional) visas (subclass 489). Thus the chance of no issued invitations for subclass 489 once the occupation is filled up by subclass 189.
